Looks spot on now mate, I got on well with the bio brisk spray so I imagine the brisk is great! Once it' all fully done inside nice and clean, get yourself a BH air con bomb, made the world of difference to an old civic I found myself in possession of recently

Thatís a good idea with the AC bomb, after speaking with the autosmart rep he said this was the easiest way seeing as I already had G101 it made sense to follow his advice.

Finished cleaning the interior and put it back together, took a lot longer than I planned but at least itís done now.

Itís not perfect back itís definitely better then it was





Ended up having to steam the headliner due to the big nicotine stain above the drivers seat.





Yum!



Although I cleaned up easy enough



Then moved on to this





Again looking much better after a good dose of G101





This looked nice again



Took the carpet out the boot to make it easier to clean, and decided to clean this up too





Then decided to fix this after discovering it just clipped in, unfortunately it means taking all the panels off to get to it.







A few finished photos











Just got to clean the glass now and go over the plastics with some ODK cabin, once thatís done itís back on to sorting the paint work out as soon as my touch kit arrives.
Also got some eBay shopping planned for once I get paid on Tuesday.

Really great job, gone are the grotty door shuts amongst other things. Hard to tell, but it looks to be low on engine coolant in the reservoir.

Small update, seeing as it was payday yesterday I decided to get a few bits (a lot of bits really) anyway things started arriving today

First item to get opened was this



And to my surprise itís a genuine part

Next on the list was this



Bit used this before but the reviews Iíve seen say itís good so fingers crossed, and if it is a good as they say I hopefully will have enough left over to do the Passat

This lot turned up today figured for £35 it was worth a try, going to have a practice on an old body shell first before I try to remove the small dent on the Corsa and as before if it works Iíll have a try on the Passat
